We Bet You Didn’t Know These Things About ASAP Ferg

Prior to launching his music career, ASAP Ferg was initially interested in enrolling in an art institution and becoming a full-time fashion designer. Although he eventually got an opportunity to enrol in an art school and also launch his brand, he later decided to switch to music after his childhood friend encouraged him to pick up the mic.

Making music is apparently one of the best decisions Ferg has made in his lifetime. From this same career, he has travelled to places, worked with several notable artists, represented some brands in commercials, snagged an award and a nomination and even secured a spot for himself on the list of influential rappers in this generation. Read everything you need to know about the rapper, his height, religion, net worth, and what his love life looks like.

Early Life

Also nicknamed ‘Trap Lord’ for his “impeccable hustle,” the rapper was originally born Darold D. Brown Ferguson Jr. in the Harlem neighbourhood of New York City. His parents, who are of Trinidadian descent, gave birth to him on the 20th day of October 1988.

Talking about his childhood, Ferg was brought up in Hamilton Heights area which is notoriously known as “Hungry Ham” because everybody residing in the area is hungry to move from there.

It is difficult to tell the religion of the Harlem-bred hip hop star simply because Ferg has not publicly opened up about the particular system of faith he identifies with. However, many people believe he is a Christian.

The rapper was born to an artistic father with an interest in Darold Ferguson (his dad) owned cloth shops in Harlem. He was also famous for producing printed logos and shirts for music elites and record houses such as Bell Biv DeVoe, Teddy Riley, Bad Boy Records, and Heavy D.

Sadly, Darold Ferguson passed on as a result of kidney failure just a few days to his son’s 17th birthday. The rapper is a high school graduate, however, he also received education at an art school where he perfectly honed his designing and drawing skills.

ASAP Ferg formally became a rapper in the year 2007 and so far, he has released two mixtapes, twenty-six singles, and two studio albums. His first album titled Trap Lord was released in 2013 while the second one which he titled Always Strive and Prosper dropped in the year 2016, precisely on April 22nd. On August 11, 2016, the album’s first single captioned “New Level” was certified gold by the RIAA.

In addition to hip-hop, the American rapper also does pop-rap, trap rap, chopped and screwed, hardcore hip hop, and east coast hip hop. Before joining the American hip hop collective A$AP Worldwide, Ferg previously worked with the record labels, RCA and Polo Grounds.

The duo later adopted their individual stage names from the musical group and subsequently went on to collaborate with A$AP Mob on several songs such as Ghetto Symphony, Kissin’ Pink, and Get High. As regards his relationship with his mates, it has been nothing short of cordial. He has his personal DJ and he is none other than iconic musician/DJ Jam Master Jay’s son, TJ Mizel.
